Anyone else in the northern climes frustrated with this weather? - Page 6

post #91 of 165

Finally played today. Temp was 46 slight breeze and it looked like it could rain. It was a perfect day on the course. thought it would be busy, but there were only three of us spread out on the course. I came home in a great mood, huge smile and my Wife said "Thank God, I couldn't take any more complaining about not playing"

It was an awesome start to the season.

I was thinking about going down there but the forecast said it was going to be really windy, possibly rainy. Didn't think I would get much enjoyment out of it.

I'm in New York, out on Long Island, finally getting out tomorrow for the first round this year. Between work and weather have not had a chance to get out. Really looking forward to it. wish me luck, first rounds of the season is always a bitch.

Yep, finally warming up! What a nasty winter it was!

Tough to find a course open in MN right now but things are looking optimistic with weather in the 50s today.  Still a decent amount of snow around the Twin Cities area.  There is an outdoor heated driving range about 30 minutes from home so that helps with the golf obsession but can't wait to play a few rounds.  Enough of the indoor golf simulators.

It was 55deg here in Toronto today.  Finally got a chance to get out to the range and watch the ball fly it's entire distance..!!

 

The golf courses that were open were PACKED!

The course was busy but I got to hit the range and play the front nine twice. It was soooo soppy.

 

 

This was the par 3 number 4 hole....lol

Although we had snow showers today, we're supposed to get a change to Spring weather later this week in NY.  I can't wait, I have a business trip to GA this week and I'm planning on taking an afternoon off and play any golf course I can find with any clubs they may have available.  It's supposed to by about 75.  I can't wait.

In NH some of the driving ranges are opening up but most courses still have holes with some snow cover. I spent the winter hitting balls on my optishot home simulator. I'm sure the results i'm seeing won't translate totally to REAL golf but I thank god I was able to play SOME TYPE of golf with decent swing feedback all winter. I've probably played 4 to 5 simulated rounds a week minimum since last Christmas not to mention hitting on a simulated range. Starting this coming Thursday I'll be taking indoor golf lessons for 4 weeks in Chelmsford MA at Pappas Golf and by the end of the month I think most of the local courses will be open for business. Can't wait to see how the optishot rounds and 4 weeks of actual lessons translates on the course! (I've never taken lessons before)

It's 50° today in Pittsburgh with temperatures in the 60°'s all next week.  I think the weather is finally cooperating.  Hallelujah!

 

By the way, I played solo today.  Teed off at 11:15 and holed the final putt (a birdie) at 1:25.  I walked the course in two hours and 10 minutes for 18 holes, and I played through 2 twosomes on carts, to boot!

Was finally able to hit at the Chelsea Piers driving range last week in Manhattan.  They have a heated range which makes it more cushy after an hour or two outside.  It is finally warming up though in the tri-state area.  I am planning on going to the range a couple more times before attempting my hand on the course..... the Masters usually is a huge motivation for me to clear my schedule to get out on the links the next weekend.

I hit the first one at 15 foot from the hole, the second time through I topped it (I think) and it was down short of the hole 25 yards. Still salvaged par e2_whistling.gif to push the hole.

What's worse than no golf all winter is what happens every spring at my house.  The snow finally melted out of my yard a couple of days ago and it was time for the annual early spring yard patrol.  So many days this winter I'd get home after dark and leave for work the next day before it got light out, that it seemed like I was never home during daylight hours and would always be letting my dog out into the yard at night.  It snowed so many times this winter that even on weekends it was difficult to catch up on cleaning up after the dog since the snow just kept covering everything.  Man I hate yard patrol.  Listening to ESPN Radio over headphones helped, but even that reminded me of why I so seldom listen to the Extra Sales Promotional Network these days - seems like you get no more than 3 minutes of sports talk before they slip in another 2-minute round of commercials.

 

I did hear a pretty funny commercial for one my favorite courses that just opened today:  "Swingers, are you looking for some action?  Twosomes, threesomes, even foursomes.  Come on down - our course is now open."  Judging by the completely dead condition of my yard, it's hard to imagine that that course is in even vaguely playable shape.  I remember years ago playing one of the first courses in the area to open, in mid-March and they definitely opened a few days too soon.  I was putting on one green and watched my really well-struck 20' putt look like it had the perfect line until it suddenly popped about a foot into the air and veered off course - it had hit a semi-frozen footprint sunk about 3/4" into the green.
